This seems to happen because of the above line having two $ in a row. static std::string TOKEN_LINEDUMP("$$ static std::string TOKEN_INDENTNEXT("$$>"); Removing the second $ on the first line causes it to be shown normal: static std::string TOKEN_LINEDUMP("$ static std::string TOKEN_INDENTNEXT("$$>"); Further investigation is needed.

Time was, every prompt started with a lower-case character. Life was good. Then people started complaining about specific instances. "We're a site for people studying proper English" they said, "It's important we set a good example", they claimed. Fine. The title prompt here now starts with an upper-case character.

Update This problem has been submitted to Meta.StackExchange. At the time of this edit, it has not yet been resolved. Cause I done some testing on my machine, and found that I have a broken Open Sans font located in C:\Windows\Fonts. However even when I deleted this broken font it was re-acquired at some point. I'm unsure if this was due to Windows, or ...

The author of jQuery resizable plugin had their account merged with another yesterday. During a merge, the badges are moved over/re-awarded and they can appear with a different creation date as a result. "no comments" is one of the requirements for the badge, so Creation of a list of 1000 items with Backbone became eligible once the comments were deleted ...

I just found out, they aren't live yet: @Szabolcs I'm thinking like until mid or late February at the moment. It'll depend a lot on how much new submissions we get. – Grace Note♦ 3 hours ago In the mean time... Let's make more ads!!

The help center has the following note about bounties: To avoid overly promotional bounties, if you are offering a bounty on a question that you have already posted an answer to, your minimum spend is 100 reputation (not 50). I don't know whether it is by design, or if it is a bug, that your deleted post is being counted as a posted answer. I can see ...

You cast that close vote on Jan 16 at 0:02, and it 'aged away' on Jan 20 at 3:00. Close votes expire, and you cannot close-vote twice on the same question.

This question was answered on Meta Stack Overflow. It's the total [number of review items]. It doesn't take individual user actions into account at all at the moment. Essentially, asking SE's servers to keep track of each user's number of review items is simply too much load to handle, so the number of review items for all users is cached, displayed, and ...

This is kind-of working as intended. What you observe, is the code being taken as a point in the bulleted list. If you want this, add another 4 spaces of indentation and the code will be formatted correctly. Point Point 2 import code code.do() If you don't want this, break the bulleted list by inserting something else in between. Even an invisible HTML ...

This behaviour is the same on all Stack Exchange sites, and it is documented in the editing help. A list item continues until a line is reached that has no indent. This allows you to have multiple paragraphs, quoted text, and code blocks inside a list item. If you want to follow a numbered list by a code block (without the code block becoming part of the ...

I looked into what does the SE version of prettify.js actually do. Turns out, its list of C# keywords starts like this (only with minified names): var CSHARP_KEYWORDS = [JAVA_KEYWORDS, "as,base,by,checked,decimal,delegate,descending,dynamic,event," + … This list is from an old version of prettify, the current version starts like this (the relevant change ...

This isn't a bug. Since the reputation threshold changed, "Inline editing" requires 10k rep. You'll be there soon :p

Upvotes can be reversed, under certain conditions. Most likely your post reached 10 score at some point, and then one of the upvoters undid an upvote, bringing it back to 9. The badge must have been awarded while you still had 10 score. Once awarded, badges remain forever. This is most likely what happened, and there is no bug. As you were awarded the ...

They are caused by tabs, and yes, tabs are "evil" on Stack Exchange. They break code formatting. Here is shown on the real post, no problem! This is shown in the editor, still looks good! And this is shown in the preview... hmm? Finally, this is shown on the revision's source... eh? The fix is easy but cumbersome: don't use tabs, align (...

Code Review's gargantuan tiles were inherited from the following style rule in the site's theme: body { background-size: 280px 503px; } I guess it's technically fixed now but we won't fix it and we can't reproduce it so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This came up on Meta.SO and a number of other sites. It seems to be an API glitch that affected all Stack Exchange site statistic ads. It should be fixed now. The bug is fixed, but the ad is cached for an hour...so it will take a bit for the fix to show up. Nick Craver♦ Looks like it will fix itself within about an hour.

This is a known issue (yeah, sucky answer). It has been known for years, and the fix is likely not going to arrive any time soon. In reality, you probably have not been using https to connect to meta, so you have not noticed. The login and so on work fine, it's just the actual meta.*.stackexchange.com sites (meta.stackexchage.com works fine...). The issue ...

Sorry, but I don't really want to change our code only to accomodate random extensions that someone may have installed. I'm sure that your extension has ways to handle this.

It says "questions and questions where you wrote highly-ranked answers". Read it as "(questions) and (questions where you wrote highly-ranked answers)", not as "(questions and questions) where you wrote highly-ranked answers". Note the where you wrote highly-ranked answers. Maybe that part should be marked as bold or something to make it clearer. Answers ...

The change that caused this bug has been reverted and will be fixed in the next build. Thanks for reporting!

There's a window of 4 hours (often referred to as "grace period") after a question being closed in which answers can still be posted. The "Post Your Answer" button and the box in which to type your answer are hidden, but answers are still being accepted. For example, if you've started writing an answer before the question got closed (and yes, there are (or ...

It's not a bug, it's a feature! See a duplicate question on the network-wide meta site Short version is: It's not really listening. It's just an animation.

The language syntax highlighting used in Code Review (normally) comes from the language tag set on the post. This is one of the reasons we have only one language tag per post. The language syntax highlighting is done through a prettify script that is used in all code-related Stack Exchange sites. The "definitive" guide is here: What is syntax highlighting ...

We had to tweak the URLs used to request these ads internally. They are now protocol-relative, so you should see the question and proposal ads show up fine over HTTPS now.

It works correctly if you specify <!-- language: lang-vb --> (which is what I just did), but not when you use just <!-- language: vb -->. I believe that for this to work, the tag vb (or, even better, vb.net, because then it would work automatically for that question) would have to be mapped to lang-vbon this site. But I'm not sure what's the ...

No, this is not a bug. The ♦ moderator tools for converting an answer to a comment includes two options: convert answer and do not migrate comments convert answer and migrate comments Based on the type of answer and accompanying comments, a ♦ moderator can decide if comments should be migrated with the answer. Here are example scenarios for both options: ...

Community wiki posts don't award reputation, which explains why you see the upvote records but not a corresponding increase in reputation. If you clicked the "make community wiki" checkbox by accident when posting the answer, a moderator can undo that for you.

There are three ways an answer gets into the Low Quality review queue: Flagged by a user Flagged by the system based on various quality checks run when the answer is posted Directly added by the system based on a combination of the checks in #2 and various other criteria... Including the post's score. The quality checks used for #3 are pretty weak; there ...

The “Recent Hot Answers” list for that tag links to this question: https://codereview.stackexchange.com/q/97/2041, which does have the untagged tag, but it is also locked. I guess that's why it doesn't appear in the normal list of questions.

At the moment we are not going to implement this because evaluating the content of each edit to determine only the significant ones would generate 3 times the SQL load for little gain. We've found a way (kudos Nick Craver) to implement this more efficiently and it will be rolled out in the next deployment. Old awarded badges will not be revoked.
